Sought after by starlets and actresses across the globe, Jamie Coombes is the make-up artist called upon time and time again to create those all important red carpet looks. His work with the world’s most exciting breakthrough actresses Samantha Barks, Juno Temple and Alice Englert has brought him international attention, whilst seasoned stars such as Sarah Gadon, Caterina Murino and Tilda Swinton rely on him for his signature modern make-up style.
Jamie’s work has featured in leading style titles Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, In Style, Grazia and Luxure and international editions of Elle, Cosmopolitan and Glamour, offering insight into his sought-after creativity and artistic skills.
Regularly attending Dior’s international presentations to share his outstanding make-up talent, Jamie’s style is likened to the way an artist would work – sketching out his drawing using light strokes of the brush or pencil to frame the features, before adding colour.
Combining a modern approach with classic make-up artistry skills – and with a reputation for creating exceptionally flawless complexions – Jamie is a much sought-after guest tutor at London’s leading make-up academies.
Booked for the world’s most glamorous film festivals and award ceremonies, Jamie has worked with the world’s most famous faces – including models Eva Herzigova, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Cole; international actresses Sarah Gadon, Michelle Rodrigeuz, Ceceil Cassel, Sharon Stone, Mischa Barton, Ann Parillaud, Zinedh Samara, Virginie Ledoyen and Claire Julien and leading actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Rodrigo Santoro, Vincent Cassel and Forest Whitaker.
